Bragg Jam boasts a great lineup again this year — with almost 60 bands playing on stages throughout downtown Macon on 7/26.
And we’re headed that way. hissing lawns is co-hosting a trip on a “tricked out” coach from Savannah to Macon, and back. We’ll be leaving Ellis Square sometime before noon, probably, and returning late at night. The excursion has been arranged by Kayne Lanahan and the rest of the folks with MusicFile Productions and Savannah Stopover.
The $50 ticket includes Bragg Jam Concert Crawl ticket, transportation, food from The 5 Spot, plus free beer, wine, and soda on the bus. And there’s a gift bag too.
We’ll be on a 36-passenger bus from Spanish Moss Charters and Tours.

The Georgia Music Foundation and the Knight Foundation Fund at the Community Foundation of Central Georgia are co-sponsoring the daylong excursion — such cross-pollination is a great way to promote the state’s music scene and to support revitalization efforts in Macon. The trip will include a stop at “The Big House” Allman Brothers Band Museum and the Otis Redding statue.
When I mentioned these plans to some of the other hissing lawns contributors, important questions arose: “What does ‘free beer’ actually mean?” “Who will control the music on the bus?”
In addition to micromanaging our own comfort all day, hissing lawns writers and photographers will be previewing Bragg Jam and covering it pretty extensively while we’re there.
The impressive Bragg Jam lineup includes: The Blind Boys Of Alabama, The Whigs, Those Darlins, Sam Hunt, Kopecky Family Band, The Apache Relay, American Aquarium, The Black Cadillacs, Randall Bramblett Band, CUSSES, and dozens more.
And you know what this calls for: yet another hissing lawns photo gallery.
